Drinkers 'raided London hospitals for alcohol-based hand gelA man who nearly died from drinking hand gel containing alcohol, has detailed how he was part of a group which systematically raided London hospitals for a drink.
This is by no means a new problem and has been happening for many years in most areas where ABHR's are readily available.
Non Alcohol based hand rubs are indicated for use in children's wards, for elderly patients, units treating addiction and wards where patients may be suffering from confusion.
Is it time to consider the use of non alcohol based hand rubs in areas where there is easy public access.
Esense Hand Foam Rub in a non alcohol based hand rub, which has 3 active ingredients. The efficacy is equal to that of ABHR's and provides an excellent alternative to those healthcare workers, patients and visitors who for a number of reason do not like using the current ABHR on offer. By providing an alternative for the choice of the end user will enhance hand hygiene compliance.
It will also prevent headlines hitting the news such as that on the BBC today.
Esense Hand Foam Rub is one of the products in the Ebiox non alcohol based hand hygiene system. For more information go to www.ebiox.co.uk

So despite what some authorities say hand hygiene is not the only answer and there is a need to look at other areas which could be harbouring pathogens, yes hands are the main transport mode but only for example if there is contamination of surfaces and equipment in the vicinity of patients for hands to transport.
Could textiles be classed as a "surface". It is now well documented that textiles used in Healthcare Workers Clothing, Patient Clothing and Linens are contaminated with pathogens. These "surfaces" are either in direct contact with the patient or the hands of HCW's and thus there is the potential for the pathogens to spread.
This concern is supported in many ways now. Separation curtains around clinical areas and beds for example are now being changed to disposables, HCW's ties should no longer be used. Very specific laundering processes are used to reduce any bio-burden there maybe in clothing and linen. All to reduce the potential of HAI's.
Is it therefore not time to look how textiles such as Livinguard can be utilised in the manufacture of HCW's and Patient Clothing and Linen. With it's patented anti-microbial and fluid repellent coatings it could play a major role in reducing the bio-burden of the "surfaces" which harbour the pathogens for the hands to transport.

Perhaps the culture in particular impacts also day to day recommendations not just emergencies.
"The Ebola crisis proves the World Health Organization (WHO) lacks the "capacity and culture" to deal with global health emergencies, says a damning independent report, commissioned by the WHO itself"
